    Flash is powerful and compares to higher end models in recovery and power.

    The LED is exceptionally bright and is also a good powerful source for its size and price. Very convenient if you plan on switching from Still to Video or as a modeling light. Battery life seems to be excellent. Controls are limited but also add to the ease of use and forces me to use the camera to adjust Flash Exposure Compensation, which is a better practice anyway. I also tried it as a slave using a 580EX on camera and had no issues.
    They use a new locking mechanism which works better than the previous dial models that would loosen up after a while.

    Limitations you should be aware of. This flash does not have a power input for using with a battery pack. It also has two modes. Wide and Telephoto through the use of manually pulling the flash head in and out.

    For the price I just couldn't help giving this speedlite a try. I was really curious how good the LED would be for video with my 5D. I'm going to stick with my typical lighting... except for in a pinch maybe. A little under powered all around, for a speedlite, but I am accustomed to my 580EX's and 580 EX II's.

    My biggest issue is that you need to pull out the flash head for zoom flash. I'm not impressed with that at all.

    Although it cannot be used on the hotshoe as a Master to trigger other speedlites, it can be used to trigger compatible cameras. Kind of neat if you're experimenting with your lighting. Using the camera's timer function, there's a 2 or 10 second delay from when you point the flash at your camera and fire; giving you time to position the 320EX. So, if you *do* have another flash mounted to your hotshoe, and it is set to Master it will fire as well.

    Personally, for my needs, I've resigned myself to the fact that is is a speedlite that I will only use as a slave.

    Certainly not complicated, easy-to-use and much cheaper than other Canon speedlites. Suitable for an entry-level flash.

        This a good lightweight external flash that is earning it's keep in my bag. Great for the amateur photgrapher who needs the use of an external flash. I have only had it for a little more then month, but so far it does the job. Lightwieght and does not take up a lot of room in my bag at a great price. So far nothing negative to say, but if anything changes, I will update my review.

        Good but not perfect

        By Sguandal

        from Flossmoor, IL

        Comments about Canon Speedlite 320EX:

        If you are like me, a photo enthusiast who is pretty advanced with many DSLR features but quite ignorant about proper use of flashguns, you'll find this unit quite apt to the job. It is extremely user-friendly and gets the job done in most circumstance. The only reason I won't rate it as. 5 stars is that it seems to me somewhat underpowered. I mean, occasionally I find some photos to be almost identical at the end whether I have fired it or not, with my 5D Mk II having chosen (with a fixed aperture) the same settings for shutter speed and ISO. Other than that, a good choice for those like me, again unwilling to go the extra step needed to learn more sophisticated flash light techniques.

        Comments about Canon Speedlite 320EX:

        This was my first Speedlite flash. I found it very capable, but somewhat underpowered. I say capable because there are a number of features that I was very (pleasantly) surprised by that make up somewhat for the flash being underpowered. I think this is a great flash to "get your feet wet", but it seemed a bit pricy for what it delivers.

                  Product arrived ahead of the shipping date. Have already used it for a photo job, and all worked as promised although I should probably point out; I'm responding to a request for a review from B&H regardless of the fact that I've only owned the Speedlite 320EX for about a week, and used it just once. I have not tried using the LED light to shoot video yet.
                  I think the real review should come a year from now. THEN I/we will know what kind of quality/value we've gotten.

                      I bought this product primarily to provide filler light via the LED when I shoot videos with my DSLR. It works as advertised. In low light conditions, which is primarily what the LED is for, it provides ample lighting so as not to blind the subject, but just enough for a 2.8 apperture lens to capture a good clip. On the flash photography side, it is powerful enough for the type of photography I do, but not as powerful as my bigger Speedlite. At any rate, it is still a more compact device that provides ample flash when needed and an LED bright enough to capture videos in low light conditions.

                                  It doesn't seem to refresh as fast as 580EX, but that is to be expected.

                                    Gift recipient reports ease of operation, excellent light and versatility. Nice feature is that the flash is compatible to several Canon EOS models for future camera upgrade.

                                      After watching a tutorial about this Flash, I knew it would be perfect for what I needed. It allowed me to take great shots in a very dim room. The pictures came out better then I imagined.

                                          I bought a Cannon 60D and realized I needed a flash that was flexible for both recording video and flash photography. Overall, the 320 was made for just that. I like it but I think if I had to do it again I would choose the 400 series.
